As weather closes Gwinnett schools Monday, students told to log in, not come in

Monday won’t be a complete day off for Gwinnett students.

Gwinnett County Public Schools joined other metro Atlanta school districts on Sunday night by announcing it would close school Monday because of weather forecasts that predict icy roads. But in Gwinnett, the state’s largest school district, leaders added extra instructions for students, who returned last week from their winter break.

“The day will be a Digital Learning Day for students and identified employees,” the school district announced, adding that students should log into their teachers’ online class sites to access assignments. “Again, Gwinnett schools will be closed Monday, January 8, and it will be a digital learning day.”

The district’s “eCLASS” online system allows students, parents, and teachers to communicate. It also can also be used to turn in homework online and see content from the class.

Gwinnett is not completely alone: Forsyth County Schools also closed school buildings Monday but declared it an “online learning day.”
